I am confused. I have this toning tape - Richard Simmons that used the stretch thingie - not sure what its called. I didn't realize the importance of toning - until I have been reading the fitness articles in spark.

Each time a different area of my body too. What the heck am I doing wrong? I watch the video and do it exactly on form as they are doing it...

    Sounds like you were using a resistance band with too much resistance. Try going to Wal-Mart or Target and see if they have one with less resistance.

If that's the case it may just be that you aren't doing it quite the right way and it's throwing your body out of whack.

    Good luck to you.
